How to get College grants and scholarships
I found this following information on a site that I can't seem to find anymore...
Consider the following as you start your scholarship investigation:
You may be required to write an essay, pass a written exam, or complete a project demonstrating your potential.
Programs may specify how scholarship funds must be used, set time restrictions for disbursing the funds, or set a ceiling on qualifying family income.Scholarship funds may be paid directly to the college.
Failure to meet certain requirements could jeopardize your ability to keep the scholarship.
There is no magic formula for applying for and receiving a scholarship. But these tips can start you on the right foot.
Be organized. Stay on top of deadlines, gather all pertinent documents, and make copies of everything you submit. It is a good idea to send your applications by certified mail to ensure receipt.
Be honest. Don't exaggerate your grades, memberships, skills, or qualifications. It is better to focus on the scholarships for which you might be eligible.
Some scholarships require you to write an essay; others may want letters of recommendation. Send in what is requested and proofread everything. Typos and missing materials can cost you a scholarship.
I found hundreds apon hundreds of sites that grant money to people who write an empressive essay. I've submitted about 20 to different essay contest sites. Every weekend I flush one out for a better chance. Also I'm training for the National Vocabulary championship coming this November. Theres a 5,000 dollar prize for qualify and a 40,000 dollar scholarship to the one who wins. Heres the link<a href='http://winwithwords.com' title=''>Win_with_words</a>
